Face scientists worldwide consider the lips to be one of the leading features determining personality. When we feel happy, angry, or sad, the first physical indication is the mouth, as we express our thoughts both verbally and through the expressions we make. Now, experts are suggesting that your lip shape may signify even deeper psychological peculiarities and personality traits.
Jean Haner, an expert in face reading and author of The Wisdom of Your Face, believes that your pout is directly correlated with the way you behave with the different types of people around you, based on the ancient Chinese art of face reading. “The most important thing your lips speak to is [what you’re like] in relationships and how giving you are,” Haner told Cosmopolitan. “You were born with the features you have for a reason—every feature is linked to a part of your personality and they all work together to represent who you are.”
Lip reading fixates on the shape, size, plumpness, and the definition of the cupid’s bow—that little dip above the middle of your top lip—to uncover underlying personality implications. Here are some common lip shapes and the traits they may suggest.

Evenly and naturally plump on both top and bottom, this lip shape indicates that you are an empathetic individual with strong parenting instincts. People with this lip shape—think Angelina Jolie—harbor an innate desire to safeguard and protect others; their caring, selfless nature means that they deeply care about others and find great pleasure in doing so. They like to maintain a close circle of friends and value relationships above all else. This is what your favorite lipstick shade says about you.
